Things with Wings….

So I have been taking a couple of colouring classes with the lovely Clare Rowlands recently – she has been over at a paper place not too far from where I live. I cannot tell you how much it helps to have some show you how to colour properly…I have watched mountains of vids on youtube etc – havent we all? and they are good but the real thing is so much better. So now I am hooked on Copics….which is just as well since That Craft Place now stock them!!!

The challenge this time is “Things with Wings”……I immediately thought…Fairies….and it was very nearly a snow fairy but I thought I would avoid Christmas for a little bit longer, although I know it is on the way…here is my project….IMG_2874wtmk

She is a Mo Manning image, coloured with Copics. I threw in a little frantage, some hand rolled flowers, lots of Memory Box dies, some Joy Dies, some seam binding and a sprinkle of pearls….  here are some close ups….

Here is a closer picture of the frantage – this is Shabby White….IMG_2878wtmk

And a close up of those hand rolled flowers, it also shows a close up of the colouring – I have used a coloured pencil to add a little depth to the shadows int he folds othe dress here, and if you look closely at the wings you can see how fabulously the Copics pens blend together – here I have used a very soft aqua and a very soft lilac to give the wings some irridescence….

I do hope you like this project – I loved making it to share with you.

Oh Wedding Belles….

So here we are again with another challenge ahead of me…this time it is a Wedding theme!  If there is one thing I dont do it is weddings. Weddings and babies!!!!  So thats two things….I think it is because my boys are not yet at the age where they or their friends are having babies or getting married. It will come I know but I am savouring it in the meantime. However, I do have a lovely project to share with you for the That Craft Place blog challenge and here it is….

 

Wedding explosion box
Wedding explosion box

I really enjoyed making this box project – The base box is made out of pearl card stock – its a little bit thicker than normal at 300gsm so make brilliant boxes.  I have then used Sahara Sand card stock and seam binding ribbon from Stampin Up, the die cuts and flowers are Joy Crafts Floral flourishes and corner die cuts.  The glass vials came from That Craft Place and I filled them with frantage pieces which were also mixed with clear embossing powder to highlight the centre of the butterflies and the flowers. The butterflies were punched out of pearl card stock using a Stampin’ Up butterfly punch.  Here are another couple of images….
